Cybersecurity Researcher Finds School Shooting Emergency Plans Exposed Online
More than 4 million records that included emergency planning and security documents from U.S. schools were recently discovered by an ethical cybersecurity researcher.
The 800 gigabytes of files and logs, which were linked to school software provider Raptor Technologies, included highly sensitive documents, including school evacuation plans, locations of doors that have broken locks and security cameras that don’t work, maps that showed overall building vulnerabilities, threat reports, safety drills, medical records, court documents relating to restraining orders, school shooting response plans, and more, reports Wired. The records were in a non-password-protected database and were dated from 2022 and 2023.
